Since RECA's founding in 1991, our annual Christmas in October project has served local community groups in need, contributing more than $2 million in cash and in-kind donations during the process. Christmas in October is RECA's largest philanthropic event and participating in the project is a great way to contribute to a worthy cause while networking and building lasting relationships with other RECA members.

Register for Christmas in October

Christmas in October 2018 — Saturday, October 27
This year, RECA has partnered with the Austin Nature & Science Center (ANSC), which provides thousands of children each year with hands-on educational experiences and recreational activities that increases their awareness and appreciation for the natural environment. Located inside Zilker Park, the ANSC has is an underrated community asset and we can't wait to help elevate it.

RECA's Christmas in October Committee has been hard at work for several months to identify and pre-plan projects leading up to the big on-site volunteer day on October 27. The largest projects include mitigating flooding, building new habitats for the animals and re-doing the glass in the solarium. General trail maintenance, fence repair and painting are also needed.

Volunteers of all ages and experience levels are welcome to the volunteer day on Saturday, October 27 from 8 a.m. to noon. Please register above at the green button if you plan to attend. Breakfast tacos and coffee will be provided, and RECA volunteers can help guide you to specific projects that need help.
